5:46pm
find. at her the eye germany's constitutional court has struck down a law requiring political parties to win at least three percent of the vote in order to get into the european parliament our critics say that it will make it easier for extremist parties like germany's far right npd to win seats in the european parliament elections scheduled for may a host of smaller parties have welcomed the ruling the minister of small party the pirate party with a blanket in the case against three percent threshold in european elections the spirit dolls and the time the laws barring policies and political groups which received less than three percent of the defence from
5:47pm
taking seats and thus remove the electoral significance of these products to violate the principles of natural equality and equal opportunities of political parties. last night and it would be difficult. now every vote counts and even a smaller parties like the pirates have the chance to be represented in the european parliaments the problem this time the devil caucus or democratic parties will have the right to be in common is that it's not that the constitutional court has ruled that three percent rule many groups policies and initiatives can have a say in parliament he also an element of water each day but the job in government is warning that right wing extremist and anti foreigner parties will benefit from the removal of the three percent hurdle assistance towards you with five minutes none of us wants that extremists on the incident in parliament the nine kong. this is an
5:48pm
issue and not just that osgood will make. thanks to some stage. this is something that is one of society needs to care about that is its hefty stubble to combine the eu member states take differing approaches to the issue. there are twelve countries that sent no threshold at all. along with germany increases at the barrier at three percent four countries have placed it at four percent. the rest have chosen five. chile's constitutional when dancing with the european parliament failed to function properly as a result a new election threshold could be considered oh and her mind all this work i now like to get his chief political correspondent melinda cranes so melinda who exactly is going to benefit from the swelling. well there were nineteen different template is in this case many of them parties that so small that many germans have never heard of them. the decision probably won't make all that much difference to those that use not one of the beneficiaries there in the case the anti establishment pirate party
5:49pm
and a very big supported internet freedom. they can benefit from it so could the liberal free democrats as you will remember they were the junior coalition partner in uncle america's last government. there are still likely to profit from the us where it gets interesting is the far right and the euro skeptic parties for example like the npt the record economists are both far right groups or for example the eighth std. all of those parties that may now wind up getting into the european parliament who probably wouldn't have stood a chance before its willing and as the german justice minister said. that's the part that got people wary tell how is all this being received and what have the potential repercussions. whether it is that it looks like far right groups and you're skeptical parties are likely to see a very strong boat across the eu. now there's nothing to those groups would like more than to form an official political bloc within the next eu parliament and to
5:50pm
get official recognition there is a threshold that they have capacity to do that twenty five members of parliament and seventy different countries. this decision does make it more likely that that threshold will be reached because the german contingent is the biggest one within the parliament and it now undoubtedly will include more are right and euro skeptic groups. moreover the larger political bloc the more money and gets the more debate on the cats to work committee seats. it gets so for many far right and a euro skeptic group said this decision could be bothered goodness i love to see how it all shakes out with those elections in may melinda crane be given much for the inside the dimension of germany's far right scene now the german cabinet has presented before proposals for the country's intelligence service the agency has come under fire following a string of right wing motivated murders that went undetected for years. the murders are committed to members of
